Boxer Crab Fights off Pufferfish

[Narrator] Beneath the waves,
amongst the corals …lives an extraordinary creature …a sporting super star. [punch noises] The boxer crab. In a world where almost everything
is big and dangerous a tiny crustacean needs a
fool-proof plan to stay alive. This pufferfish fancies his
chances of an easy meal. But our crab has a
secret weapon… The perfect pair of boxing gloves. A blistering left hook
makes this fish think again! [cheering] And that’s because those ‘gloves’
are in fact sea anemones. Tiny relatives of jellyfish,
they have a cocktail of powerful toxins in their tiny tendrils… Every time the crab lands a punch –
The anemone delivers a painful sting. The puffer fish won’t try
that again in a hurry.
